Digital Communications Fundamentals & Applications – Bernard Sklar – 2nd Edition


Digital , Second Edition is a thoroughly revised and updated edition of the field’s classic, best-selling introduction. With remarkable clarity, Dr. Sklar introduces every digital communication technology at the heart of today’s wireless and Internet revolutions, providing a unified structure and context for understanding them — all without sacrificing mathematical precision.

Sklar begins by introducing the fundamentals of , spectra, formatting, and baseband . Next, he presents practical coverage of virtually every contemporary modulation, coding, and technique, with numeric examples and step-by-step implementation guidance.

Whether you’re wireless systems, xDSL, fiber or coax-based services, satellite networks, or Internet infrastructure, Sklar presents the theory and the practical implementation details you need. With nearly 500 illustrations and 300 and exercises, there’s never been a faster way to master advanced digital communications.
